|When I say I'm pwning this poll, I mean by five votes.|
Turn out on this poll has been pretty low–which is, of course, reflective of the problem. Octavia Butler is winning, but not by very many votes.
There are only a few days left in our Best Speculative Fiction Author of Color poll. There's a tie for second place, and even though Butler is winning by a lot of votes compared to how many have been cast, it's still not that many in absolute terms.
If you haven't yet, please take a moment to vote (the poll is on the bottom left–it's the thing with the clicky boxes).
Everyone gets three (3) votes.
